The city has average highs in the 70s for much of the year and benefits from cool to warm evenings. Beaches and hiking trails draw tourists. Water temperatures differ depending on which coast you’re on, with the Atlantic side being colder and the False Bay side being warmer.

  1. The view from 7 Main Drive is breathtaking. Going over the skyline and looking into the water is amazing. I don’t think I could leave the deck. But while I’d be in Cape Town, I’d love to check out these nearby attractions at places like Urban Park, Cape Town Stadium, and the Golf Club. Further, the price is pretty cheap, at $51/night per person. You really can’t beat that. 

  2. Decisions, decisions.   I did not expect to find so many penthouses to select from in the Capetown area.   I believe that my family and I could be happy staying in any one of these penthouses.   I love the ocean views!      Thank you for sharing which ones had exceptionally high demand.    Most of the time, I prefer last minute vacations. 

    Thank you for sharing all of the information that you did.  It will be helpful as I plan my holiday.. 

    1. Hi Sondra and thank you for the comments! You and your family would be very happy staying in one of these penthouses for sure 🙂

  3. I’ve been hearing a lot of beautiful things about how vibrant Cape town is. The culture and people depict the place so well. It’s good to know that there are lots of option in terms of place where you might want to spend your vacay in Cape Town. The array of penthouse you suggested looks elegant and comfy at the same time. My top choices would be the Bayview Penthouse which is overlooking the ocean. It looks peaceful and tranquil knowing you’ll wake up looking at a serene  view. The other one would be Penthouse Harbor Bridge just because it looks modern and bringing my teens wouldn’t be a hassle. Thanks for all these recommendation. I hope one time we can arrange an unforgettable vacation at Cape town.

  4. Loving your website.  The view from the Medburn Road Penthouse looks spectacular.  Being close to so many amenities is also appealing, especially the airport only being 12 miles away. 

    I have never been to South Africa but a friend of mine is from there and it sounds like a beautiful place to visit.  With the availability of such nice accomodations, it is high on my list of places to travel to.

    Thanks for the great article.

  5. First off I love your site design, it is more than welcome, or, shall I dare say,  alluring. That banner is everything! This is very nice, I mean very very nice. I have to reference this in the future. Is this just for this particular location or you are having more penthouse rentals later in different states and countries? Also, are considering working with travel agents that offer package deals for travel and stay? This would be so great for our clients. 

    1. Thank you very much Shamane! Really glad you like the website design and always stay tuned for more penthouse options.

  6. Thank you so much for the beautiful review of the Cape Town area apartments.I am actually planning to go on holiday there with the family at the end of August and we were wondering if it would be better to stay in a hotel or rent an apartment. Reading your description definitely made me think an apartment would be better and with everything we need. Especially the Medbrun View Penthouse looks amazing.
    Thank you so much for opening my eyes to the different possibilities even on a holiday.

  7. I like the ocean view of these penthouses for rent, it’s so relaxing and I guess with that benefit alone the price you’re paying is really worth it. I’m sure our team members will like them as well. We all love the view of the sea and the blue horizon.

    Before this year ends, our group will be coming over South Africa for a business expansion and I will use this list of yours as a reference for finding a place to stay, all company-sponsored. Thanks for the list, I will check them one by one to see what’s fitted for our group’s needs.

  8. All the penthouse you recommend looks classy and elegant with its modem interiors. Renting one for a vacation will be cost efficient if shared with friends or family members. The culture and people depict the place so well. It’s good to know that there are lots of options in terms of the place where you might want to spend your vacay in Cape Town. The array of penthouse you suggested looks elegant and comfy at the same time.

    I love Ocean views! My top choice would be the Bayview Penthouse which is overlooking the Ocean. It looks peaceful and tranquil knowing you’ll wake up looking at a serene view. I believe that my family and I could be happy staying in any one of these penthouses.

    Thanks for showing all these beautiful penthouses. All of them have a very incredible view.

  9. South Africa has always been a country of great amusement to me in the African states and if I were to visit, I would really love to explore any of these penthouses. They are just a beauty to behold and a pure haven of tranquil serenity with an ambience of elegance and beauty. All the penthouses on this list are all awesome but I think I prefer the look of the 15 Views Penthouse. It should be a delight to see an array of sights while enjoying one’s privacy. Great post

  10. this is a really nice post on the best penthouses one can find in Cape town. I’ve been looking to travel to South Africa anytime soon as I have heard one can have alot of fun at very affordable prices. All this hotels are really but if I am to pick, I’d prefer the Victoria campus bay if I’m travelling with my girlfriend. The design looks really modern and sleek. 

  11. Cape town is always in the list of every traveler. I respect and love Nelson Mandela so visiting the Robben Island Museum is my dream where he spent 18 years when it was a prison.

    15 Views Penthouse is the one I am interested with since its nearby Robben Island Museum and the information you share on “What’s Around?” is super helpful. Being a traveler I often visit your site and I love it. The images you share are very helpful. Thanks for saving people time and money.

    Much Success!


  12. This is good information to know as I have a business colleague in Capetown, and I may be traveling there soon.  Also I have another business associate here in the USA who is from South Africa and we spoke about the area the other day over lunch.  This is good timing.

    These are wonderful properties which you have reviewed at a most reasonable price.  You have presented a variety of choices based on a person’s specific needs at the time.

    The views from all of these properties are excelent and for what you get in amenities the prices are most affordable and well priced.  I appreciate this information as it will assist me in my trip to South Africa.

  13. Wow, thanks for this informative post. I’m into visa processing and I do suggest places for individual and companies to stay when traveling. Seeing this post have given me better options on penthouses to suggest to then. These penthouses are quite affordable I must say. I’ll certainly suggest these penthouses first before any other, and someday I myself would come visiting. 

  14. There is nothing more fun than to secure a conducive apartment for excursion, summer holiday or event. All this penthouse in cape Town are all eye catching. Their prices are reasonable. I have a colleague that is processing his next tripe to cape town in South Africa due to some historian purpose. I will tell him about this website for him to be aware of the appartment that is closer to his place of research.
